If you think that holiday-themed weddings are a joke, this Fourth of July celebration will definitely change your mind. Celeste and Mitch may have chosen to exchange vows on Independence Day, but their nuptials were not overshadowed by red, white, and blue. Instead of letting the day dominate the entire celebration, this couple chose a few tasteful, patriotic accents to incorporate into their wedding. The result? An absolutely stunning day with love at its forefront.
"They wanted to embrace the holiday, but not overdo it," explains Al Gawlik photographer Amy Lynn, "so they added touches of the American flag in their signature cocktail, toothpicks, and even a patriotic sendoff!" The bride and groom also included vintage elements in their nuptials, from antique silver tea sets to vintage Ferragamo shoes. Celeste even wore a hairpiece created with materials from her mother's wedding gown! Take a look at the gorgeous photos, and you'll realize that sweet touches and holiday themes can, in fact, make for a beautiful wedding.
